You just need a text editor, officially. Then you'd point your compiler at the file you save to compile. In an ideal world, you'd have a nice IDE (Visual C, Borland, or something similar) that would give you all kinds of extras like tag completion, code library references, etc.

Sumsk8,

As Dhouston said, any text editor would do... you then need a c++ compiler to convert your code to machine language.

However, I figure this is the best place to mention this...
I found a great free C++ IDE...
http://www.bloodshed.net

Its called Dev-C++... and its free... (open source!)
So if you're interested in a somewhat visual development environment... give that a try (coz its free)... VisualC++ and I think Borland's IDE's are somewhat costly
